    WOW Christophe, you should rent your hands to a movie studio, good way to save a portable drill when you can't buy batterys.

    The power supply is a 240W 12V led power supply, and the wire is 2x2.5mm2 initially for loudspeakers

    Hola Cristophe, realmente una solución para el reemplazo de baterías, muy buena la conección en el taladro y veo que la fuente tiene la potencia necesaria para absorber la demanda del taladro al momento de trabajar.
